Re: New Asnes WL Waxless Skis 2018-2019 Ingstad WL & Nansen WL

jyw5 Hey man! Good to hear from you! I think you need a report and perspective from someone that has rigourously downhill-skied both the Nansen/Cecile and the Ingstad. Woodserson Woods might be your man. We have had some reports on this site- as well as UTE Magazine's test- that would suggest to me...

Re: What is an "old school telemark ski"- a thread for the real nerds...

Yes! For me a long, narrow, round-flexing, low-cambered (and not rockered) ski with a traditional tip like the Nansen- is the quintessential example of an "old-school" Telemark ski. (I still don't understand why anyone would call a longitudinally-stiff, cambered, XC-focused ski a "Telemark" ski tho...

Re: What is the best replacement ski for the Karhu 10th Mtn or Madshus Epoch?

crb Hello and Welcome! As a few have pointed out- it doesn't look like the Epoch/Annum have disapeared- the question is whether the 2021-2022 models are identical to the old Epoch/XC10th Mtn and Annum/XCD Guide, or whether they have the redesigned contruction and geometry of the 2019-2021 M68...

Re: What is the best replacement ski for the Karhu 10th Mtn or Madshus Epoch?

Rodbelan Very cool that you are loving the M62 ski! Do we have confirmation that the 2021-20211 M62/68/78 will be consistent with the ski you bought? I get the impression from the Aventure Nordique site that the 2021-2022 models will be identical to the old Eon/Epoch/Annum (which were identical to ...

Re: XCd recommendations: MN

Nordic Rocker is a craze- and it is out of control as the banana rocker craze that took over BC AT skis some years ago. A Nordic Rockered tip-shovel encourages planing (i.e. early tip rise) and turn initiation at downhill speeds. It also encourages a ski to climb over rock-solid frozen crap- I have ...

Re: XCd recommendations: MN

All of us Nordic Ski Tourers need to accept breakable crust as part of our "typical" snow conditions. Climate Change.

I actually get satisfaction out of watching my Combat Nato and Gamme 54 destroy breakable crust and lay a track!
